How It All Began

HOW IT ALL BEGAN:

One day I was sitting around when a young chap at work claimed his dad made six thousand dollars trading Citi group shares. That got me thinking how cool it would be if I took some of my college savings and put it into the stock market. Perhaps, I could make a thousand here and there. I never thought I’d be able to pay off my whole college tuition and have enough money to be considered somewhat wealthy. I mean don’t get me wrong, Its been a rocky, up and down emotional roller coaster but it has kept me occupied and engaged in something that I feel is meaningful … making money! Ehaha.

However, I did encounter a problem. I discovered many investors who are new to the game encounter that they don’t really know where to begin. I found that I had a very difficult time figuring out what stock to get into, especially one that could have a huge upside. I mean, how could I know anything? I’m just a college student. Right!? Wrong! In the beginning after the first few weeks of getting into the market, I found myself researching anywhere from 15 to 20 hours a days.That feeling of uncertainty was lifted after I dived right in and learned through the hard way. No one knows exactly what they are doing all the time, everytime. They just act and it seem like they know what they are doing. Warren Buffett summed it up nicely when he said, “Wall Street is the only place that people ride to work in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.” It’s the same process that takes place when approaching any new venture. First, you try to overcome the resistance and fear as you move into the unknown, like the old saying, “knowledge is power,” therefore in contrast, not knowing make us feel powerless. As time passed, I started finding more and more useful resources and making actionable and sound choices that have taught me many valuable lessons. One great lesson has been about patience. Once again I use a quote from Mr. Buffett to sum up the lesson I’ve learned about patience being a virtue, “The Stock Market is designed to transfer money from the Active to the Patient.” I find that many people desire to be long term investors but fall into the day trading trap and end up loosing a lot of money. I know I’ve found myself on that sinking boat many times.

I’ve established this page, which as you can already tell is a work in progress, to share some of the companies I’m invested in and continually try to update as I discover more gems.

Hopefully, we can get a small community going where we can share with one another ideas and tips and take care of this so called money issue. :-)

Good luck to all and please invest at your own risk. We do not take responsibility for any losses or profits you make. You choose to buy and sell at your own will.
